    D0427F2E-FDF2-4C95-A6DD-F944A7D6078E.jpeg I'm calling this a sub-1" group, my personal best. This Tikka is an impressive tack driver if a casual/infrequent shooter such as myself can do this.

    I just did the same with my Remington 783 Walnut with Leupold Freedom 3-9.

    Did you zero your caliper at .308? Doesn't look like it on the vernier scale. If not, definitely sub moa. Great shooting

    I did not zero the caliper on .308”, it was zeroed on zero (fully closed). I think that technically makes the group sub-MOA. I’m being conservative on the measurement because of how infrequently (once per hear or less often) I shoot this rifle.

    Normal practice is to measure the outside to outside of your widest two shots And then subtract the bullet diameter for your center to center dimension.

    you have a fine ctc group there of about .7 inches.

    Congrats!

    Like gamekeeper said--

    1.0900" - 0.308" = 0.7820"

    standard way to measure groups, group size minus bullet diameter=group size.

    I measure center to center with a scale and call it good. To each his own.

    Thanks again folks, you taught me something about measuring groups. There is a good DNR range not too far from me, with a 200 yd range. I want to try it, never having shot 200 yds.

    When we were kids brother and I tried to hit the roofing nail that held the tar paper bullseye on the target. We were shooting peep sights at the time, and my eyes were 64 years better.

    That’s nice shooting. I like to shoot groups, more with rimfire these days than centerfire and I can appreciate the feel you get with a good one.

    You need to shoot more. With practice you can get regularly get groups that size or smaller.
